- Sustainable Alternative towards Affordable Transportation (SATAT) is a developmental effort that would benefit vehicle-users as well as farmers and entrepreneurs.
- It aims to tap the potential of Compressed Bio-Gas (CBG) production plants as it has the potential to replace CNG in automotive, industrial and commercial uses in the coming years.
- CBG produced at the plants will be transported through cascades of cylinders to the fuel station networks of Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs) for marketing as a green transport fuel alternative.
- The entrepreneurs would be able to separately market the other by-products from these plants, including bio-manure, carbon-dioxide, etc., to enhance returns on investment.
- This initiative is expected to generate direct employment for 75,000 people and produce 50 million tonnes of bio-manure for crops.
